Keri Hilson Dissed Beyonce

Poor Keri Hilson. The singer/songwriter's career took a nosedive after she dissed singer Beyonce on a leaked track that never saw the light of day. Everyone in the industry knows not to try Beyonce who is so well-connected that she upstaged the president of the United States at his own Inauguration!

Once Beyonce put the word out to studios and music producers not to work with the Atlanta native, Keri found it difficult to even book studio time.

Nelly and Tae Heckard

According to another blog, rapper Nelly, 42, is dating actress and video vixen Tae Heckard. Nelly reportedly dumped R&B singer Ashanti -- after stringing her along for years. The only problem with this story is that Tae is very well-known in the Atlanta lesbian community. At one point she moved to California to live with her longtime (stud) lover, and there was talk of a wedding.

Yesterday, I told you the names of cast members of Mona Scott-Young's much talked about new reality TV series titled Hip Hop Gossip Girls. The information was passed on to me by someone who actually appears in one of the episodes. (She was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement). The names she gave me were correct (at the time). It took me a few days to write that post -- in which time, the names of the cast changed.

So I was not wrong about a couple of the names -- I was just late. Anyway, celebrity blogger Tattletailzz has the names of a few of the cast members:

Sharon Carpenter (Global Grind) Kim Osorio (known mainly for Source Magazine and a book about industry secrets exposed) and JasFly from Vibe. We believe more will be announced.

We also hear that Sandra Rose was asked but she did refuse.

Tattletailzz left out the other two cast members: Necole Bitchie and Angela Yee.

According to VIBE, radio jocks Angie Martinez and Miss Info are no longer members of the cast (I'm told they quit).

So there you have it. Warm tea is just as tasty as hot tea. Keep it here for more details!

    Rumors are flying that Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has a secret love child with a former TV reporter.

    It all makes sense now.

    Tongues were wagging when LeBron's fiancee Savannah did not immediately join him on the court to celebrate the Heat's NBA Finals win.

    The celebrating began even before the clock expired during game 5 of the NBA Finals.

    Teammate Dwayne Wade's sons joined their father at court side as the seconds ticked off the clock, and Chris Bosh held his newborn son as his wife Adrienne Bosh looked on with pride.

    But Savannah was noticeably absent when LeBron glanced around the court, asking, "Where's my family?"

    When we finally did see Savannah, the look on her face was one of indifference. She seemed oddly detached and out of place with the jubilant atmosphere around her.

    And now we know why: her fiance is allegedly a daddy for the third time.

    Sandrarose.com was the first to break the story that Nia Riley (Teddy’s daughter) and Deiondra Sanders (Deion Sanders daughter) might be lovers. After I wrote about them, both women took to their Twitter pages to vehemently deny there ever was an intimate relationship between the two of them.

    But today we received an email from someone claiming to be Nia Riley explaining why they are no longer friends. The impostor said Deiondra went on a Twitter rant against her former stepmother Pilar because Deiondra was "obsessed" with Pilar. Apparently, the fake Nia sent the same email to other urban blogs.

    The real Nia took to her Twitter page a few moments ago to blast the fake emails.

    Yesterday, actress Vivica A. Fox, 48, broke her silence on her break up with local club promoter Omar "Slimm" White, 28. She admitted she has the tendency to rush into relationships with men who have "a six-pack and a smile."

    I reached out to Vivica's ex-fiance Slimm to get his side of the story, and to ask him what he thought about Vivica's interview.

    According to Slimm, he walked away from the situation first. In fact, Slimm says that when Vivica gave Sister 2 Sister magazine an interview for the December 2011 cover, she acted as if they were still together.

    "Of course you're not going to admit that somebody broke up with you because it would make you look bad," said Slimm.

    On allegations that he used Vivica for the fame:

    SLIMM: "If I was in it for the fame, I would have kissed her a**. I would have just basically played the game if I was just trying to use her. You want happiness, you don't want to be in it for the wrong reasons because it wouldn't work out. Furthermore, if I was using her for fame then why not play the game and put my pride aside and follow through on tying the knot? The reason being: I'm not that type of man and I refuse to sell myself short for fame."

    Congratulations to Shannon Brown and Monica for tying the knot for a second time in front of family and friends on Saturday!

    As you know, Mo and Shannon married in secret at their California home in November of last year. This time around, they invited hundreds of guests to watch them jump the broom!

    First, I want to address all the lies that began filtering out just minutes after the couple said "I do."

    Yes, Monica and Shannon's good friends, Khloe and Lamar Odom missed the wedding due to circumstances beyond their control.

    The reason Khloe wasn't there was because she and Lamar had a death in the family. Lamar's cousin was murdered the night before the wedding and they had to drop everything and fly back to the East Coast. Everybody at the wedding knew about the tragedy. Monica has spoken to Khloe and Khloe told her she would have given anything to attend Mo's special day.

    Khloe told friends "I would never want anybody to think I would just miss their wedding."

    Khloe is very down to earth, and the two women are very close. Khloe always looked after 'Melo and Lil Rocko at the Lakers games. The friends actually met before Monica met Shannon. Our condolences go out to Khloe and Lamar.

    There was also a rumor that Kobe's wife, Vanessa, didn't attend the wedding.

    Not only was Kobe's wife the first one at the wedding, but she stepped up to fill Khloe's role once she found out what had happened! Vanessa took a helicopter from Kobe's basketball camp in Santa Barbara to be in the wedding.

    Monica's friend Keyshia Cole wasn't there because she is currently on tour.

    Even by Hollywood's standards, security was extremely tight. Yes, guests were asked to walk through metal detectors at the wedding. That was because more than 40 of the invitations were stolen prior to the wedding, and Monica wanted to make sure her invited guests were safe since they were in downtown Los Angeles.

    In contrast to T.I. and Tiny's wedding where inconsiderate guests uploaded grainy photos to Twitter.com, Monica and Shannon made sure their wedding was paparazzi and Twitter-free. The Exclusive photos of the wedding will be released next week when Mo and Shannon return from their honeymoon!

    Speaking of which, Mo's cousin Ludacris could not attend the wedding because he was performing in concert out of state.

    But Luda's girlfriend Fab was one of Mo's bridesmaids. And Luda ordered his pilot to gas up his private jet to fly Monica and Shannon to their surprise honeymoon from Atlanta this morning (Shannon and Mo don't even know where they're going)!

    As some of you may know, singer Kelly Rowland and her manager, Devyne Stephens, parted ways last week. According to an industry insider, Kelly's boyfriend, Tim Weatherspoon, made her fire Devyne.

    It seems that Weatherspoon (pictured at right and below with her) didn't get along with Devyne, who celebrated his 40th birthday in grand style last night in Atlanta (more on that later).

    "Tim was co-managing Kelly with Devyne," said my source. "If you notice, he's always in pictures with her. A lot of people may not know [he's her boyfriend] because he's more like an average Joe. He's not well-known. But she really loves him."

    Kelly has been riding a wave of newfound fame fueled by her #1 hit single, "Motivation", featuring Lil Wayne. Although she is a superstar in the U.K., Kelly wasn't as popular here in the states as she was when she sang backup for Beyoncé in Destiny's Child.

    Industry insiders believe Kelly Rowland's renewed popularity in the U.S. is the reason why her boyfriend pushed for Kelly to dump Devyne.

    "He wants them to be like Jay Z and Beyonce," said my source, who believes "a little jealousy" may have precipitated Tim's decision.

    "That's a battle that Devyne couldn't fight," he said. "He can't go up against that. [Tim] is with Kelly everyday. They sleep together, etcetera."

    Last night, up-and-coming singer K. Michelle went on a Twitter rant calling out celebrity blogger Necole bitchie for being a bitter wannabe recording artist who blackballs successful studio artists such as herself.

    I thought K. Michelle's rants against NB were interesting considering that I've heard rumors about Necole (allegedly) accepting favors and perks from record labels to write favorable posts about lame singers, such as Trey Songz.

    Remember I told you last year that NB enlisted the aid of industry exec Michael Kyser to groom her into a recording artist? Many of you scoffed at me for saying NB took up blogging to better position herself to get a record deal.

    Well, here's what K. Michelle tweeted about that:

    Lets be real @necolebitchie u are one big head hatin ass blogger. U see me fightin 4these girls but u continue 2block my material cuz u ride dicks. U have a real problem with me 4 no reason. Its not my fault u didnt get a record deal. #stupidbitch @necolebitchie I love my job but hollywood people like u R sad. All I wanna do is help women do better. U R a blogger not a artist. Remember Im not kissing yo ass for a post on ur blog. Fuck u take this and sit on it. Keep black ballin me,ima keep singing. Three things I know how 2do 1.sing 2.be honest 3.and fight 4what I believe in. Good night

    If you recall, I also wrote a blurb about NB hastily packing her bags and moving to Miami 2 years ago after a breakup with a certain female singer:

    Necole was reportedly despondent over her breakup with a not so well-known female singer who was spending a lot of time in Atlanta. So Necole was happy to move to Miami to put some distance between herself and the chick.

    Now, I have no idea if the singer was K. Michelle or not. So please don't quote me on that.
